Notre Dame: 2002

Yes, yes, it’s been a looooong time since I really posted here, or on any of my other blogs, for that matter.  I will get into that another time, but I do feel the itch to write today here, and take it slow, because something happened that tore at me, and many other people around the world.

The beautiful flying buttresses of Notre Dame.

In December of 2002, my dear friend Joan and I took a bus tour around Europe. The last big stop on the tour was Paris. I loved Paris. It’s gorgeous. One of stops on the tour of the city was the magnificent Notre Dame cathedral. I got some photos of the outside. Unfortunately, I believe the did not allow your to take photos inside for fear of people using their camera’s flash. Flash lighting is damages old tapestries and stained glass windows.

Entrance Details

I do recall a sense of awe and quiet while in there. I know many people have described that same feeling when entering Notre Dame. It is a magnificent piece of architecture, engineering, and beauty. It breaks my heart for the loss of this work of art that so many people over the centuries have marveled at.

So, that’s where I leave it today, but are two more photos.
